Westhoughton. Marriage of John Snape
« on: Sunday 28 January 18 14:27 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
Is there anyone in the Westhoughton area who could look for a marriage between John Snape and a Sarah? This lady was born in Westhoughton in about 1785, according to the census.
They had a son, Joseph who was born in 1818, so I assume they married a few years before that, especially if he wasn't their first born.
Any information will be much appreciated.

Yes Rosie, I have the marriage certificate. It states that Rachel is illegitimate and so far, I have not traced her birth. On the census returns her place of birth is written as Waverham, but I believe that it was spelled as it was pronounced locally and  should be Weaverham.

Thank you Carol W for your reply
I have already checked familysearch.org and cannot find anything to suggest John's wife, Sarah  but I will check the other websites you suggested.

Hello
On 1841 census Rachel Nut is living at Lostock,Horwich in the household of Titus Barlow, there are Snapes on same page .John and Sarah with children Joseph,James and John jnr are living at Greenwood Horwich. john dies between 41 and 51 census so don't know his birthplace but i would presume Horwich.Sarah dies 1866 in Wigan.
The Snape family are still in Horwich today.

Thank you for your reply, hol. Yes, I have found that information on the 1841 and have all the later information. However, I am still looking for the surname of Sarah,  wife of John Snape.

I have the year of birth of three sons , Joseph 1818, James 1824 and John 1826. I don't know if there were others. My search for the marriage of their parents and particularly their mother's maiden name eludes me. She was Sarah and born 1785 probably in the Westhoughton area according to the census.  I have searched all the usual sights. I found a Sarah, Christened 1786 in West Houghton, daughter of Adam and Alice Brown and she is most likely to be the one,  but until I find her marriage to John Snape, I can't be sure.
I am just about to go through familysearch again in case I missed it.
